Who’s ready for Christmas? I’ll admit, i’m not! As much as I try to get things squared away early on, I never seem to have it together! I’m ok with it, though, I will be good by Christmas day.
As much as I already need to accomplish, I keep adding things to my to-do list. Kellogg’s sent us a fun box of goodies, such a fun and warm holiday surprise! We had to try something fun, and there’s always time for fun with the kids, no matter what else I’ve got on my plate. We’ve been all into the holiday spirit around here, so it was only right that we created these fun Reindeer Rice Krispies Treat Pops!
This is a fun, holiday twist to the classic Kellogg’s Rice Krispies Treats, I love how they turned out! Super cute, easy to make and delicious, these little reindeer pops are perfect for Christmas parties, or even just a fun and tasty activity for the kids. Here’s how to make em…
Reindeer Cocoa Rice Krispies Treat Pops
adapted from the Original Kellogg’s Rice Krispies Treats recipe
You will need:
- 6 cups Kellogg’s Cocoa Krispies
- 1 – 10oz. package of marshmallows
- 3 tbsp. butter
- paper straws
- red jelly beans
- black cookie icing
Make the Cocoa Rice Krispies Treats:
In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat and stir in Kellogg’s Cocoa Krispies cereal until completely coated. Adults should complete this part.
Using buttered spatula, spread the mixture out onto a piece of wax paper. Allow about 10-15 minutes to cool, but no longer.
Put the reindeer pops together:
Take a small handful of the Cocoa Krispies treat mixture and roll into a ball. Slide a paper straw into the bottom, about 3/4 of the way through. To form the antlers, break your pretzels in half and stick them into the top of the ball, on each side. Place a red jelly bean into the front of the ball as the nose, and make two black dots with your cookie icing to form the eyes.
Now admire, then eat!
I was able to make 15 reindeer pops with this recipe, but this will depend upon the size of your balls. Wait. Ok, get your mind out of the gutter!
These were simple to make and fun for the kids, they loved putting them together! You can set these down on a festive holiday plate, or stand them upright in a small glass vase with some peppermints, jelly beans, or other matching holiday candies to hold them upright.
Enjoy, and Merry Christmas!
